* In the ''Franchise/{{Marvel 2099}}'' universe, [[Comicbook/ThePunisher2099 the Punisher]] (2099 version) had his own private prison. Of course, in his {{Cyberpunk}} {{Dystopia}} CrapsackWorld, anyone who could shell out the fine could get away with ''any'' crime, including murder. This made him - relatively speaking - as much an extremist in his world as the original Punisher (who just shoots everybody) was in his. Possibly more so; his prison came with a torture chamber. By the way, he reserved his prison for offenders whose crimes he felt didn't quite deserve the lethal approach - this was actually his idea of mercy! He also had his own version of the electric chair in case he ever changed his mind.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko''; when XANA has a reason to take an enemy alive, he uses a Guardian, a monster Aelita describes as a "digital jail". Exactly how it captures a victim isn't known, as both times, it happened offscreen (although Aelita's reaction suggests it isn't pleasant) and once that happens, the prisoner is kept in an unconscious state inside the Guardian, which seems almost indestructible from outside force. However, it seems even dumber than XANA's other mooks, and can be fooled easily if presented with a clone or illusion of the intended target.

* Gigi, a VainSorceress and HornyDevil from ''WesternAnimation/TheLifeAndTimesOfJuniperLee''; in order to stay young, she had to [[VampiricDraining drain the energy from other magical beings]], so she kidnapped them and turned them into animals before imprisoning them in the Orchid Bay Zoo. (June herself became a victim while trying to rescue them; [[BadassDamsel a mistake on Gigi's part]], as is often the case with this Trope.)

* Lock-Up from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' (and CanonImmigrant to the Franchise/{{Batman}} comics). In the animated series, Lyle Bolton was once the new Head of Security at Arkham Asylum, but whose methods were so harsh and extreme that everyone at the asylum was afraid of him, particularly Scarecrow. After being relieved of his post, he would go on to "arrest" those who he deemed to be at the root of Gotham's problems, including the mayor, Commissioner Gordon, reporter Summer Gleeson and the chief doctor of Arkham ([[SarcasmMode coincidentally]] the very same people who exposed his abuse of power and had him fired, making this a case of revenge) before being stopped by Batman and Robin.

* ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'' had a villain named Leech who kidnapped and held captive other "Banged" super-humans, the reason being his Bang-induced powers was the ability to assimilate those of others - temporarily. (Kind of like Superman's foe Parasite, but it only worked on Bang Babies). Victims included the criminals Ebon, Talon, and Hotstreak, but he seriously messed up when he tried to go after Static himself, grabbing rapper and SpecialGuest Lil' Romeo instead, who had been wearing a Static costume.
